    Dunno, around 6 monthsish.

    I still hold him sometimes but he still holds his bottle, though when I hold him he tends to much around and not want to drink so I let him feed himself propped up on a pillow.

    From around 6 months, DD became a very fussy drinker, and after a couple of days I figured it was because she wanted to hold her own bottle. Very independant

    My son held his own bottles and could fed himself by 6mths, my daughter though was breastfeed until 6mths before being out on the bottle so i think she was about 8mths before she learnt to hold her own bottle

    DD is 10 months and I'm still feeding, she can hold her bottle but I'd pefer to have snuggles at feeding time instead.

    4.5mths, using the TT bottles with handles.

    Now at 8mths she uses bottles without handles.

    But TBH, handles or no handles, she has always played around whilst drinking, I think it's just her...

    She won't let me hold her bottle or her whilst feeding, she's way too indepedent for her own good

    Thanks all. I do love the snuggling time with my DD but just wondering at what age should I expect it to change.

    My son often has a bottle propped up on a pillow, he's just gone 4 months, but for the past month he has been holding it.

    Unfortunately he pushes it away a lot by accident, he hasn't mastered the required coordination.
